I don't think so. An Advent calendar is an countdown to Christmas that starts about a month before. Spanish almanaques were yearly calendars containing extra information such as the phases of the moon, the appropriate dates for sowing and harvesting, other tips and stories to fill up the pages, and even weather forecasts for the whole yearI am not sure, but I think English Advent Calendars are more similar to our ancient Almanaques. They tell a story, a riddle things like that ,, instead of containing chocolates like ourrs. Could you please confirm it?
Who said pages? Alexa is right, it's chocolates. It consists of a cardboard structure containing little cells that have chocolate ore other treats inside. They are designed for children who are supposedly allowed to eat one sweet a day by tearing open the cardboard or plastic or whatever keeps the cell shut. It is both a way of teaching them self-restraint and a way to build up anticipation for the holiday season. I'm sure that if you google it you'll find better explanations.So, what is an Advent Calendar, please? I can't imagine a calendar with only 25 pages and nothing else, I don't think anyone would buy that
